Subject: Father Put the Cow Away
Father Put The Cow Away, by Bud Messner and Molly Darr.

Starts out with the story of the old maid and the burglar, then a chorus about not being able to do the milking for the night.... succeeding verses are other similar stories.


"Father put the cow away
Get her out of sight.
I am heavy-hearted,
I cannot milk tonight.
It ain't fair to this here cow
For me to try and milk her now.
Father put the cow away--
I cannot milk tonight.
Tra-la-la-la-la, Tra-la-la-la-la,

I'll transcribe if no one has them as a paste-in.
